Ireland, the final destination! Today is the 24th, which makes tomorrow the 25th. Shortly after that it will be the 26th. A three day weekend and then the 29th! The 29th we leave to Frankfurt, which is just a mere 36 hours from a short plane ride home. That's the easiest way to think about it...a way I've been thinking much lately. Kind of like a kid approaching Christmas. I love Ireland, but I love Moscow too, and since I havent seen Moscow in three months, and since I've already been in Ireland for a week, Moscow tends to be on the mind more. A lot more. We have been spending our days doing the typical travelling: pictures, eating, pictures, frisbee, eating, and then more frisbee or pictures. Same routine, same results, same enjoyment.
We are pretty much exploring Ireland out of Killarney, a nice little tourist town that has access to everything that Ireland has to offer. We have traveled the Ring of Kerry, will see the Dingle Peninsula and will surely make it to the surrounding villages full of views, story's, and history. Spending three nights in Dublin to start our Ireland trip, we were able to see much of what it has to offer as it is not that big of a city.
We toured the Guinness Brewery.
And got a free (14€) Beer! It was the freshest beer I'd ever had.
A week more, but here is some scenery...and a little wildlife.
I ranged em at about 30 yards, maybe not that.
Either way, farther than last fall
And some sights.
St. Mary's Cathedral in Killarney.
A funny little hut. The roof may be a fire hazard.
And of course. A Castle.
